Starting from a young age, Bethany always had empathy and love for animals, and she dreamt of becoming a vet. Bethany fulfilled that dream when she graduated as a veterinarian from Murdoch University in 2019. Since graduating she has been working at Greencross Sandringham surrounded by such an amazing group of people who have dedicated their careers to helping animals. Bethany has thoroughly enjoyed her time at Sandringham and has developed a passion for soft tissue surgery and medicine cases. As well as her clinical work, Bethany has also done some volunteering in rural India and in the Northern Territory, where she enjoyed treating and desexing stray animals. To keep herself busy outside of work, Bethany enjoys beach walks and coffee.
Bethany began her journey with Greencross Vets in early 2018 when she began volunteering at Greencross Vets Sandringham. It didn’t take long for her to gain a position within the clinic as a veterinary nurse, as it was clear to everyone how much she loved her time in the clinic, and how great she was with the animals. With the intention of becoming a vet, she soon realized all the wonders of nursing and hasn’t looked back since, and is now studying to be a fully qualified vet nurse. From a young age she’s always been surrounded with animals, with a handsome cavoodle as part of the family at home and intentions for her fur family to grow in the future. Besides lapping up all the pet cuddles at work, she has a keen interest in plants, all crafty things and anything to do with food – just like all pets, the way to her heart is with treats!
Sienn is one of our vet nurses, and she is also currently studying for her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Melbourne. She is always seeking to further extend her experience, knowledge and practical skills in the animal industry. After completing multiple animal related diplomas/degrees, Sienn’s love for animals has grown more and more each day and is forever expanding. Each and every single animal, no matter what size or shape is important to her, however our unusual, weird and wonderful, pets will always have a very special place in her heart. She is currently the proud owner of a pint size petting zoo at home consisting of hairless dogs, cats, lizards, and snakes. If you’re ever trying to find her, you will either catch her hanging out with an animal (either at work, through her pet sitting service, or at home). She also loves spending her spare time eating out at cafes/restaurant (is a sucker for Japanese food), singing along horribly to her favourite bands, or watching Netflix on the couch with a furry companion.
When I graduated from high school I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, a wise person (thanks mum!) told me to think of something that I’m passionate about and go from there. So that’s what I did, I annoyed all the local vet clinics until I finally got a job as a kennel hand where I assisted the veterinary staff and got a first hand impression into what a career as a veterinary nurse looked like. Safe to say I loved it because 10 years later and here I am, unable to imagine doing anything else!
When asked if I’m a cat or a dog person I have to answer BOTH. I simply can’t choose as they are each so wonderful in different ways. I have 2 cats of my own; Jimmy (Type A personality) and Peppa (Introvert) whom I love dearly.
Perri became a vet nurse straight out of high school after working at the Ashburton cattery for 2 years. She did work experience at Ashburton during year 10 at high school and that’s when she decided she was going to be a Vet nurse.
